Back in January I decided that I was going to start writing on my blog again to keep a record of my pregnancy and happenings in my life. Well I did really well for two or three posts and then I went right back to updating Facebook but not much else.
At this point, I’m just over two weeks out from my due date (March 28th) and I’ve bought everything that I could possibly ever need for baby (anyone who knows me knows I’d rather be over prepared than not have something), his nursery is done, and my checklist of things that have to be done is getting shorter and shorter.
And every day I keep telling Richie that this baby is too comfy to come out. Other than the fact that my belly is huge, he’s not causing me any problems and I’d be happy for him to stay in there for a while longer. In reality I’m just nervous. Taking care of a baby while pregnant was a piece of cake – eat my gummy prenatal vitamins at night, get sleep, exercise, and eat. Taking care of baby after pregnancy is a different story altogether and as much as I’ve read, heard, and seen…it’s just so unknown and scary and I don’t do well with the unknown.
But in a couple of days I’ll be posting pictures of a newborn and all of the nerves and anxiety I’m feeling right now will be a thing of the past, or just replaced with “I have no idea what I’m doing” feelings. But I’ll figure it out; I always do. And if not, I’ll just go hang out in my new favorite place – this little guy’s nursery – because it just feels right.
